Be sure the camcorder is off; then connect the camcorder's DV port (not USB) to the computer's firewire port (not USB) with a firewire cable (not USB). Then put the camcorder in Play or VCR mode, launch MovieMaker and Capture or Import the video. If it still does not import, download and install WinDV to get the video from the digital tape to the computer...
When I connect my cmcorder JVC GR DVL 725 U with forewire cable connected to PCMCIA card with fire wire port, my computer with XP SP 3 doesnt recognoze the camcorder.
Computer recognizes the PCMCIA card with fore wire port but when I connect the cable with camcorder and turn on nothing happens.
Please help me out.
